Unique Moments Photography traveled to Chehalis to capture this awesome wedding for Cassidy and Adrian. The venue is “The Loft” in downtown Chehalis. Its an old warehouse that had been converted into a wedding venue. The venue is rustic and is completely surrounded by used brick inside and outside and the floors are very rustic, worn and wooden. This place definitely has a western feel to it and it is perfect for brides who are using cowboy/cowgirl theme wedding attire for their weddings. I actually prefer this venue to a barn type setting and it was perfect for this couples needs.
The Loft does not have any male getting ready areas. However the girls have an area by the ceremony area that is rustic and it has lots of used brick and wooden floors for getting ready shots. The bride can remain hidden from her guests so It’s perfect for getting ready needs. However, the room has old style fluorescent lighting and the lighting is very very green in the rooms. Off camera flash and gelling will help a ton and/or cranking up the flash to override the ambient light in the room will yield photographers the best results in this area of the venue
This was a smaller wedding with close friends and a large families for the bride and groom. So we took lots of family pics before the ceremony as well as after the ceremony. The downtown area of Chehalis is older and rustic and there was no local parks close by to take the bridal party to for pictures so we used the area around the venue to capture outside bridal party pictures.
Guests were treated to a great taco bar for dinner as well as a non stop margarita bar for the grown ups. Reception activities included first dances with the bride and groom, first dances with the brides two fathers, and a mother son dance. Speeches followed, along with a cake cutting, and a garter and bouquet toss. We were able to get the bride and groom outside for a bridal walk in the downtown area and we captured some images in the upstairs loft at the venue after the sun went down as well.
This was an awesome wedding and we made some great new friends. This was a single photographer wedding package and we delivered over 900 images to the couple. Cant wait to see wedding album selections. Congratulations to this couple for a great wedding. This was a lot of fun to photograph
